Early Heresies: Adoptionism

In the sixth episode of Faith of our Fathers, Jonathan Brack and Charles Williams discuss two of the earliest heresies in church history: Ebionism and Adoptionism. The Ebionites regarded Jesus as Messiah, but rejected his divinity while insisting on following Jewish laws. Adoptionism was an early heresy that Jesus was adopted as the Son of God at some point during his life—often his baptism, resurrection, or ascension.
